It’s the first show of 2019, and the Awesome Comics Podcast team – Dan Butcher, Tony Esmond and Vince Hunt – talk about what they and the listeners are looking forward to in indie comics in the coming months.
There are lots of names, titles and more to keep an eye on are mentioned as well as some great recommendations!
